Toxic Teacup And Saucer - You Have Been Poisoned
Historically renowned as the "Black Widow", Mary Ann Cotton spooned arsenic into the tea of three unsuspecting husbands and two lovers. Who, after all, would suspect a nurse? And a quite handsome one at that?
Her affinity for insurance premiums exceeded any longings for a soulmate.
Her true tale is as chilling as the chamomile that sits for hours on a January day.
Upon several sips, the foreboding message "You have been poisoned." is visible through the amber brew thereby raising eyebrows as to ones pending fate. An opulent European china pattern cannot distract from such grave concerns.
- Verdant, poison-ivy green design.
- White porcelain.

My Sister bought this for me for my birthday and I just love it. I also got the poison ring too.

I love the dark humor and mystery this cup and saucer set evokes. Beautiful workmanship and pattern. Can't wait for my next party to slip it in the mix!

A lovely tea cup and saucer which is handsomely gift boxed. I can't wait to give it to my daughter who not only has a tea cup collection, but will appreciate the irony as well.

When I saw this teacup in your catalog, I knew it was perfect for my daughter. I bought it for her as part of her birthday gift. She is a tea drinker with a macabre sense of humor. I know she is enjoying it and am so happy! I have been a Victorian Trading customer for decades and have passed that down to my two daughters. We love VTC!!!

I love this cup and saucer set! My mom got it for me for Christmas, and it's just perfect! At first glance, it's just stunning, and at second glance, it's HILARIOUS! It's rare that a gag gift is also beautiful and functional; I am delighted to have one of my own!
